Chambliss Statement on U.S., Taliban Peace Talks

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, vice chairman of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, released the following statement regarding the Taliban's announcement that they will begin peace talks with the government of Afghan President Hamid Karzai and the United States:

"Despite the remarkable progress made by the U.S. military over the last 12 years, the Taliban have regained their strength and remain unwilling to make any real commitment to cease hostilities. Given their resilience and ongoing resistance, I am concerned any attempt to restart negotiations will once again become one-sided and will do nothing to further our interests in preventing terrorism against the United States and our allies. Until the Taliban confirm, not just in words but in action, that they have renounced all terrorist activity and support, we should not reward them by participating in any reconciliation efforts."
